Welcome fans of BFME and LOTR
On this page i will introduce you with my mod for Rise of the Witch-King, on which i worked on for the past 2 years
Before playing this mod, be sure that you have patched the game with 2.01 version
The Battles of the Third Age (BOTTA) mod is a mod for The Battle for Middle Earth - The Rise of the Witch King.
This mod tends to follow the lore of books and films along with bringing the realism in the gameplay, and generally concentrates of the happenings in the Third age of Middle Earth, so you will see almost every character that fought in the battles of this age, for example: Bolg, Beorn, Imrahil, Shagrat etc.
Lots of the balance from the vanilla games is fixed so be free to expect some new gameplay styles and new strategies and tactics that you will use in order to destroy your enemy.To do that, you will get help from the new Heroes and Units and their new Powers that are in this mod.
No rush tactics anymore, AI wont charge on you in the first 5 minutes, giving you no time to expand your camp and upgrade your economy. Gameplay now focuses on defense, rather than offense like in the vanilla game. So you will have a lot of time for preparing for battle, upgrading your units and level up your Heroes.

General changes:
- Stronger Heroes
- Stronger Structures
- New Game balance
- New Heroes, Units, Buildings and Powers
- New and improved Textures for every single Hero or Unit in the game
- Smaller battalions
- New Upgrades
- New Siege system
- New Upgrade systems
- New sounds and effects

NOTE:

- War of the Ring mode is buggy

Stay tuned for more news and screenshots

Will Beorn be just a spell of dwarfs or also for other faction? Will Dol guldur also included in Mordor faction or just minas morgul and cirith ungol? In morgul stronghold, no minas morgul archers are shown, so they are removed now?

Beorn will be just a summon for Erebor for now, Dol Guldur is not part of any faction for now. Morgul Archers are removed because Mordor really doesnt need another Archer unit.

Follow the Botta mod installation tutorial under the above articles. It happened, that some people also had problems that their download files got corrupted. In case of doubt, download the mod again.
